Hello! My name is Shannon Taylor. I'm a long-time writer and editor from Minnesota surprised to find myself on an island in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, three younger children (the oldest is attending college in Chicago), and two dogs.

Spring Knitting Round-Up

I scooted around the web yesterday looking for something springlike to knit and found some cute ideas. If I start one of these now, I just might finish in time for Easter. Which is one month from tomorrow! (And also Tim’s birthday this year.) How about this adorable sparrow’s nest from Whit’s Knits?

Or this pair of bunnies from Knitting at Knoon.

Never Not Knitting has several designs for very sweet headbands for girls of all ages.

Spud & Chloƫ promise that this reversible duck to bunny knitted toy is easy to make.

I’m not the only one thinking about spring projects. I spotted this tutorial for DIY felted chicks on Design Mom this morning. I suppose that, technically, it’s not a knitting project but the birds are so adorable I had to include them. I learned how to needle-felt last year and it’s easier than you think. So don’t be afraid to try it!

Does spring make you itch to be creative? I find myself wanting to redecorate and try new recipes. Maybe every new season brings with it the promise of a fresh start. Do you have a fresh start in mind?

    That nest of eggs is adorable. In fact, all the items are. I must get knitting again. I’ve got stuck on a sock heel and still haven’t sorted it out. However, I want to knit some vegetables to use as row markers in the polytunnel.
    Off to buy a chicken – a live, clucking one I mean!

    Knitted vegetable markers–I love it. Good luck with the chicken shopping!
